Pineal cysts occur in all ages, predominantly in adults in the fourth decade of life. In series of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies, the prevalence of pineal cysts ranged between 1.3% and 4.3% of patients examined for various neurologic reasons and up to 10.8% of asymptomatic healthy volunteers. The diagnosis of pineal cyst is usually established by(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the treatment patterns of migraine and tension-type headache in the Croatian population. Analysis included the proportion of patients who were taking specific antimigraine therapy and the number of tablets per attack per month, the proportion of patients who were taking prophylactic therapy or using alternative treatment(More)
Essential tremor is one of the most common movement disorders characterized by combination of postural bilateral action tremor with frequency 4-12MHz. Diagnosis is based on clinical examination, while neuroimaging methods so far have limited role. Recent reports showed that substantia nigra (SN) hyperechogenicity detected by transcranial sonography (TCS) is(More)
The functional effect of the pineal gland cyst is difficult to evaluate with visual field examination. The aim of this study is to investigate the usefulness of visual evoked potentials (VEP) in patients with pineal gland cyst due to the possible compression on the visual pathway. Black-and-white pattern-reversal checkerboard VEP were recorded in 75(More)
OBJECTIVES Until today there is no reliable test that can clearly distinguish Parkinson's disease (PD) from the essential tremor (ET). Our aim was to determine the usefulness of the transcranial sonography (TCS) in the differential diagnosis of the PD and ET as well as the interobserver reliability for this method. METHODS Transcranial sonography of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the lifetime prevalence of vertigo and dizziness in patients with migraine as compared with controls and to establish the lifetime prevalence of migrainous vertigo. BACKGROUND Dizziness and vertigo are relatively frequent complaints in general population; however, the prevalence of migrainous vertigo has(More)
Recent transcranial sonography (TCS) studies showed that disruption of echogenic midbrain line, corresponding to basal limbic system and raphe nuclei (RN) within, might represent functional marker for the development of depression. Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the most common psychiatric disorders associated with suicidal ideation. We initiated(More)
In this article, the authors have gathered data from epidemiological, observational, case-control and cohort studies to evaluate the differences between men and women in terms of ischemic events, mainly stroke. The authors are highlighting the differences that exist between men and women and play a role in terms of social diversities, and the(More)
Although electroneuro- and electromyography are still the leading diagnostic methods for investigation of peripheral nerve function, they do not provide information on their morphology. This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of ultrasonography in visualization of median nerve in healthy volunteers. Twenty-five asymptomatic volunteers (17 women(More)
Mirror illusion means that standing in front of a mirror placed in sagittal plane, with the head tilted on one side and one arm stretched forward, one side of the body is reflected as if it were the other side by mirror visual feedback. The aim of this study was to monitor blood flow changes in middle cerebral artery (MCA) by use of transcranial Doppler(More)
